I got my stoma on my surgeon's birthday, so I gave her a card a year later thanking her! She still talks about
how impressed she is that I remembered her birthday! How could I forget?!?
To my sick colon, wherever it may be, "Get well soon!"
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in '99 at age 28. Proctocolectomy and ileostomy in '06.
Pain-free, med-free, and very thankful to be healthy again :)
